The Fix Is In For Clinton - The real delegate count as of 3/6/16 is Clinton 677 Sanders 478


The real delegate count as of Sunday is Clinton 677 Sanders 478. Superdelegates include  all Democratic members of the House and Senate and sitting Democratic governors; the rest are chosen during the primaries. Superdelegates are free to support any candidate for the nomination.  


So, why is the media reporting Clinton 1137 Sanders 498? The answer is simple, the media is heavily invested in a Clinton win. Most voters want their vote to count, so they vote for a winner, and by presenting her with a big lead, those on the fence will vote for Clinton.
